Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
Rather than speculating I would suggest you to get an ophthalmologist's consultation, there is no relation between the throat and the eye. Yellow spots could be due to nutritional deficiency.

1. You will need an anti reflux medication. There may also be a transient throat infection causing the swelling. Ciprofloxacin is not the ideal antibiotic for a throat infection.

2. Yellow spots in your eye may be a sign of :

a) Liver disorders. Repeat your liver function tests.

b) Irritation or dryness of the eye. What is your occupation?

c) Lipid disorders

d) Rarely due to long term ciprofloxacin use.

3. E-mail a photo of your eyes to with 'Attn: Dr. Sumit Bhatti' as the subject line. Alternatively get an ophthalmologist's opinion.

4. If the entire sclera is yellow, rule out jaundice.

Hello there. I woke up this morning with very sore, very red and very swollen eyes. There was a clearish discharge built up and crusting. I put some eye drops in but it hasn t helped. They are still very swollen and itchy and sore. My throat and nose are also very sore. I took a close look at my eyes and they almost look as if they are turning a yellow/red color now. I am not sure whether or not I should go to a doctor today about it. I work admin and have to use a computer all day and the screen brightness hurts my eyes as well as the brightness outside.

Hello, for years now I have nausea during and after eating and a lot of times when I m not eating. I wake up with bad indigestion every day and suffer all day with it whether I eat or not. A lot of times it feels like something is stuck. I ve had my gallbladder checked and it functions properly. I was told I do have a fatty liver. I ve lost about 15 pounds since November without trying because of the nausea and not being able to finish eating. Could it be possible that I have a food allergy even though I don t have to eat to feel bad? I also have bloody stools and lately loose bowels almost not making it to the bathroom. I ve had 2 colonoscopies with normal results. I could go on but I think this is enough to start with.
